Real Progress

Desperate Housewife Nicollette Sheridan dropped her towel and ran butt-naked into the arms of Terrell Owens of the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night. The NFL's mad. I'm sure Dr. Dobson and the FCC will be too.

Me, I'm jumping for joy.


Because no one's going to get killed over this. Heck, the Chicago Tribune didn't even mentioned what would have made this an occasion for murder 50 years ago.

Sheridan is white, Owens is black.

In 1955, Emitt Till, a black teenager from Chicago was beaten to death in Mississippi for the alleged crime of whisting at a white woman. His murderers confessed in a 1956 Look article but were never charged with a crime.

Today, no one even noticed when a naked white woman jumped into the arms of a black man on national television.

That's progress.
